Event description

Description

The Delaware Department of Education in collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders will be reevaluating how progress, performance and programs at the state, district and school levels are currently reported and subsequently redeveloping how that information is shared. The Delaware Report Card will reflect stakeholder feedback and comply with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) federal requirements beginning with the 2017-2018 school year and is federally required to be published by December 31, 2018.



Over the next 15 months, the Department of Education will be working with stakeholders to understand items such as:

  • Report Card Elements: Ensuring all relevant data elements are being shared through the report card;
  • Priorities: Understanding if information is considered “need to know”, “nice to know”, and “do not need to know”;
  • Education Terminology: Defining report card terms with clear explanations using common language;
  • Data Visuals: Creating appealing and understandable visuals to tell a story when numbers are not enough; and
  • Navigation: Ensuring data availability through the ease and use of the report card website and navigation.


Some of the required changes to what is publicly reported under ESSA include:

  • Long-term Goals and Measurements of Interim Progress - Progress of student performance compared to state goals;
  • English Language Proficiency Attainment - How well students who learn English as a second language are achieving language goals;
  • District Preschool Programs - How many students enroll in district preschool programs; and
  • Chronic Absenteeism - How much school a student misses due to reoccurring absences for any reason.




An email account has been established for the public to submit questions or comments to help inform the redesign of the Report Card - Delaware.ReportCard@doe.k12.de.us. A list of all Stakeholder engagement times and locations, as well as updates and progress, will be available on the Report Card website.
